Downtown Austin RestaurantsYou’ll find signature creations by our Executive Chef, Ben Nathan, like Thai Style Mussels–PEI mussels, steamed in a sweet & spicy Thai coconut-curry broth, served with grilled French bread. Dipping the bread in this sauce is as good as it gets! There’s the appropriately named Kick Ass Sea Bass, which is sesame-teriyaki glazed Chilean sea bass topped with crispy onion strings, served with rice pilaf and asparagus.

An 8 oz. center cut beef tenderloin filet lightly blackened, topped with jumbo lump crab meat and béarnaise sauce, served with garlic whipped potatoes and asparagus.
